Sales pitches and reports in the news often don't even make any sense



I read this statement "As of September 2019, renewable energy accounted for 9 percent of Vietnam’s energy mix".

I almost just skimmed on past it but in considering it further realized it makes no sense.

It was about a turbine that exploded into thick black smoky flames there.

The sentence says the same thing 2 times.

The term "renewable energy" and "energy mix" is the same thing. This is how we get tricked.

They made it sound like 9% was wind energy, it's likely more like 1%, a mere insignificant 1%.

I know this because I was looking up these kinds of details on the Arizona utilities website (add link here if possible) and it too had first sounded like wind was a significant portion but the details looked at more closely showed it so much less.

Almost all reporting on "renewables" uses these tricks.
